Winter blooms

Autumn is always a brief season in the world of floristry, as festivities start early for Christmas. Many think Winter is a cold, drab and dull season. But although it may be cold, it is far from drab and dull in the florist shop!

We are fortunate that with the Dutch markets, where flowers grown world wide are available to all countries, many flowers are obtainable all year round – we could even have tulips in July and peonies in November if we really wanted! But there are a few seasonal treats that really signal Winter is here to be enjoyed!

And top that with all the early Spring blooms that start arriving too – tulips, iris, hyacinth, daffodils, scented narcissus, ranunculus… oh, I can hardly wait!
